Somehow you missed the 2 in your formul for Circumference of a Circle Correct formula: C = 2 x pi x r = pi x D r = radius and D = Diameter

Surely you mean pi times diameter, not radius.

Sorry.  As many of you have pointed out, I got the formula confused.  As everyone else has stated the formula is Circumference=Pi X diameter.


I actually tried to fix it this morning, but the post was removed.

 

The answer is 9.42 ft, not 4.71 ft.
